We took out at the boat ramp above the rapid... yep.
That has gotten a lot steeper in 14 months. Can't imagine a flip in the left run with 15-20k pouring down on you. Just not worth it with my skill level or that of most of my friends.
Would be an educational experience to watch experienced kayakers and boaters running it.
But when I look at runs like that I have to wonder "do I have 5k to replace my rig?" Hell no.
Cheers to the better boaters and the dynamic nature of modern rivers.
